Small Business of the Month!
Kaitlyn Herman, Founder of Kait Coaching!
Tell us about yourself!
It’s really hard to define who Kaitlyn Herman is. I get asked this question a lot and sometimes I don’t even know what to say. A typical answer is, “My name is Kaitlyn Herman and I’m a certified Life Coach & Guided Meditation Instructor” but I am so much more than that. I’m an empath, a healer, a creative, an entertainer, a spiritual being, a bravo addict, a professional napper… the list goes on and on. I guess to tie it all together, my name is Kaitlyn Herman and my purpose is to help shift peoples perspectives and make them feel less alone.
What business did you start?
I began Kait Coaching after going through a year of coaching certification training in 2017. My desire to become a coach came quite quickly after realizing that the music industry wasn’t for me. I had always believed I’d be some big shot in the music industry, but I quickly realized the toxicity of that world and shifted careers. I always knew I wanted to help people, I just didn’t know how that would look. In 2016 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that forced me to shift my perspective of life. I had two options: either allow this diagnosis to mentally and physically kill me OR view this diagnosis as an opportunity instead of an obstacle.
If you could give advice to a woman who is thinking of starting a business, what would it be?
Starting a business can be really scary and full of unknowns. The best advice I can give is to follow your intuition. I believe that the inspiration you have to even start a business is a message from the Universe. When you are tapped into your purpose, the Universe is constantly supporting your utmost dreams and desires. Just take the risk, don’t give into fear based thoughts, and trust that the Universe has your back.
What makes you feel most fabulous with being an entrepreneur?
The fact that I get to make my own schedule is really freaking fabulous. I am my own boss. I am fully responsible for how much work I put into any given day. This freedom allows a special creative flow in my life. It’s also super empowering when you successfully fill up a coaching group or sign on more clients because that was completely my doing. It’s very rewarding to see success and know that it’s all because of the hard work you put in.
